 Located in [[Constance]],​ the Anderson Ferry is named for George [[anderson_family|Anderson]],​ who bought it in [[1817]] from Raleigh Colston. The Andersons built a large stone house overlooking the [[ferries|ferry]] where the family resided and operated a [[taverns|tavern]]. The Anderson family owned the ferry operation until [[1841]], when son Evan transferred the property to Montague McClure. According to legend, the transfer was the result of a lost poker game. However, there is evidence the Underground Railroad played a role in the property transfer. Located in [[Constance]],​ the Anderson Ferry is named for George [[anderson_family|Anderson]],​ who bought it in [[1817]] from Raleigh Colston.
